“Very good hotel, lovely views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2012

Very good, clean hotel with lovely views of the water from the sea view rooms. Prices were reasonable, rooms were clean, and beds were comfortable. Air conditioning during some very hot days worked very well. Breakfast was good. Front desk staff were helpful, though a little stern. Easy access to everything through bus, taxi, and tram. I'd happily stay again.

One note: the hotel faces a very busy road (the sea is just across the road). With the balcony windows open it is very loud so be aware of that. With the balcony windows closed it is not noisy due to the good soundproofing.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms will obviously be more appealing.

We decided to have our wedding in Athens and we chose to have our wedding reception at the Coral hotel. We were very pleased with organisation of the hotel and the staff. Everything ran like clock work! The food was of very highly quality and all of our guests were extremely happy with the service on the night of wedding and not only! Many of our guests were from overseas and were extremely pleased with the overall ethos of the hotel and staff. The breakfast was very rich and there was wide variety of food to choose from. Overall a beautiful exeperience and we thank the staff and management for making our special day memorable!!! Christos-Artemis

Just finished a 10-day visit with family & friends. This hotel is a gem in Athens located in a great neighborhood on the water with easy access to transportation. We brought a rental car and the parking is tight but with an excellent staff, it was never a problem. There is some traffic noise in the evenings but not that bad. The rest of the hotel staff was excellent as well and we will stay here whenever we're in Athens.

Room Tip: Upgrade to the water view that includes a nice balcony.

We may have stayed at the Coral about 10 times now, it is still very good value for the services and amenties provided. The ataff is attentive always ready to help and bar one ( who will will not name) always smilling!
Rooms are quite big for Athens standard, very clean, B/F is good though we have lost the orange juice machine, which messy as it was, provided everyone with fresh squeezed orange juice at will, food is good and very convenient. Location is fantastic as away from the hussle of central athens yet near enough by taxi and with the tramstop within metres.
We use it on the way in and out of Greece and the hotel staff is nice enough to let us keep a suitcase there for our return. Only gripe is a very slow internet ( but free).
Really no hesitation if you have kids, this is very good value and great service.

Dear guest XtianC, we more than appreciate your continued preference. Thank you for your kind review, so positively expressed. Yes the orange juice machine has been lost (in action) but I hope you were still served freshly squeezed orange juice by the glass, as there is always a pitcher on the buffet table.
You may be interested to know that your comment regarding the free (but slow) internet casted the decisive vote for upgrading our wireless system. This has been scheduled and is going on with no further delay.
It gives me great pleasure to pass your comments to the staff for the services provided.
We all look forward to welcoming you again in the future.
With kind regards,

My wife and I took our 4 kids to Greece for 15 days. While in Athens we stayed in two hotels, one right by Syntagma Square and the other was The Coral Hotel in Paleo Faliro (we stayed in 3 other hotels while in Greece as well). Wanted to write this review because I want travelers to know about our experience at the Coral Hotel.

Couple of highlights...the staff were terrific. A few examples...my kids left a bag with 2 iPads on a tour bus. The front desk staff called the tour company and worked everything out - we had them back the next day, delivered to the hotel. We also miscalculated the time of another tour and they talked with the tour company and helped us get it rescheduled. Lastly, as you might imagine - 6 people can accumulate a fair amount of laundry. We had dropped our laundry off at a local laundry place but found ourselves unable to pick it up before it closed so the front desk staff arranged to have it delivered to the hotel, no charge. All simple things but they added up for us. GREAT STAFF.

The hotel isn't a giant glamorous place, but it has everything we were looking for...rooftop pool, fitness room, a nice breakfast (probably the best on we encountered among the 5 hotels we stayed at in Greece) and it was clean and comfortable. Best part - it was almost HALF the cost of our other Athens hotel, which didn't have a pool.

Two (minor) lows - Wifi service that is great in the lobby but pretty much unusable on the floor that we were on, and the equipment in the fitness room needs a little maintenance.

We wish we had stayed here for the entire portion of our time in Athens vs. just 3 nights.

Room Tip: I might avoid ocean front rooms just to get a quieter night's sleep.

Not only do we appreciate the fact you selected our hotel for your stay while in Athens, (one of the two), we welcome your comments with great pleasure as well, dear klerekper. Your generous acknowledgment of the staff will be communicated to them. Please allow me to thank you on their behalf. The point is it is not only our duty to assit our guests in any way possible, it is also our pleasure to add some "extra care." We are pleased to know you also recognized that the cost of your stay with us was a lot more reasonable than what you found in other hotels in Athens.

We do apologize for the WiFi service in your room. We can assure you that we will check again and correct the issues. We will also attend to the fitness equipment. We thank you for pointing these out to us.

If you plan to visit Greece again in the future please know that you and your family will always be welcomed by "our" family.

Kind regards from all of us at Coral Hotel Athens,
Nikos Houliaras

How I rate hotels. Star ratings for hotels are based upon facilities and services. It is easy to find the star rating for any hotel. I rate hotel based upon the experience. For example, a 2 star hotel may provide a 4 circle experience.

The Coral hotel is a perfect example where the 4 star rating of the hotel is complemented by a 4 circle experience. This is an excellent hotel with an accommodating staff, good food, and nice comfortable rooms. Since Athens can be very hot in the summer, it is a plus that A/C in the rooms are very efficient and cools the room within 15-20 minutes.

I stayed here as part of a Cosmos Tour Group. They offer a nice breakfast buffet. There is a small beach just across the street which offers a pleasant evening stroll.

Tip: If you come out of the hotel and walk to the right, then take the next right, you will find a small grocery store (with beer) within a block. Walk another 2 blocks and you will find a nice restaurant (Corner something??) on the left side of the street. Food here is good and the prices are very reasonable.

I heartily recommend this hotel.

We felt very much at home. The assistant manager Mr. Asproulis and all personell treated us like family members. Facilities were very clean and maintained well, air-conditioner just right. Food was excellent good home cooking made on site with a great variety to suit all tastes. Location has everything at the doorstep--transportation and beach across the street and coffee shops, shopping, church, and more restaurant and ice cream, etc., around the corner. Room service with good pizza, etc., and for those leaving very early even a boxed breakfast for the road ahead.
That shows great care for visitors staying with them.
